The paleo diet is known to have a number of beneficial consequences which include weight loss, muscle gain, and increased endurance. This diet is conductive to health, but there are still a few drawbacks or side effects. The next video explains all the potential downsides of the paleo diet. The paleo diet normally curtails the intake of carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are known to provide energy which can increase stamina and endurance. If there is a shortage of carbohydrates consumed, this will limit one’s ability to put in the maximum effort during workouts. This can lead to less intensive workouts from lack of energy. The muscle gained in such a diet is also often doubted to be permanent.
